2011 Jaguar XKR Coupe new car reviews

The latest Jaguar XKR Coupe combines stunning lines with a heap of power.
Power comes from a supercharged 5.0-liter V8. That sounds so American, doesn't it?
The power seat switches amused us.
The GRM parking lot never looked so good.

Better than: Clapped-out XJS
But not as good as: E-type
GRM Bang For The Buck Index: 51.10

Jaguar is no stranger to producing some of the world's finest coupes. That streak continues with their latest XKR.

While this car has now been with us for five seasons, there's still much to love, from the 510-horsepower, supercharged 5.0-liter V8 to the sexy shape. Torque? Yes, there's plenty of that. How about 461 lb.-ft. from 2500 to 5500 rpm?

Price? If you have to ask, can you really afford it?
